Customers in the Fifth Avenue corridor from Oakland to Downtown may experience low water pressure or interruption of their service during a test today, the Pittsburgh Water and Sewer Authority announced.

The test will precede planned repairs to a leaking air valve on a 30-inch main on South Neville Street in Oakland. It will begin at 9 a.m.

The authority said it did not expect problems but will stop the test if water pressure drops significantly. Customers who experience low pressure for more than 30 minutes were asked to call 412-255-2429 or 412-255-2409.

South Neville Street will be closed from Fifth Avenue to Henry Street from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m, the authority said.
